Google supplies bevy of introductory videos starring the Verizon Galaxy Nexus

Google supplies bevy of introductory videos starring the Verizon Galaxy Nexus
Today may have been the world-first launch of the Galaxy Nexus overseas, but U.S. consumers are still (not so) patiently waiting on Verizon to announce when the first taste of Ice Cream Sandwich will be available to them. Perhaps it was with that in mind that Google released a series of introductory videos that star the Verizon LTE version of the phone.

Rumors still abound as to when we will see the handset show up on Verizon, with suggested dates ranging from as soon as the 21st of November to as late mid-December. The most reliable chatter suggests the 28th of November as the most likely date. Of course any of these rumors are subject to change based on carrier testing and requisite bug-squashing, so until we hear from Big Red officially take all dates with a grain of salt.

And in the meantime you can watch the videos. The “Verizon 4G LTE” logo is visible starting at the ten second mark.

Yeah, really. I hate it when people make claims, yet offer no supporting evidence. Citation, or you're full of it!

Why phone makers don't keep it secret like iPhone don't spread the news until the phones are shipped and stocks in the Store like Apple Stores has done. Some of the phone makers spreads or leaks concept phones news to public and people has to waited for that concept phones for a long time. People are tired of waiting games.

well even after that accidental loose of a prototype there was still unknown things about that phone. i pad 2 caught everyone of guard with how thin it was, there extremely tightlipped and opposite of most companies such as Microsoft. No secerets at all.

Yup, Apple keeps everything a secret, that bar thing was an accident. Think about it, EVERYONE was expecting an iPhone 5 and maybe a iPhone 4S, when in reality none of the rumors of the iPhone 5 materialised. That means that no reputable news source in the world knew how what was going on inside of apple.

So I'm wondering what the second ICS phone will be since it will prolly arrive the same time as the Nexus. Maybe I'll just wait for the edge.
